the last presidential -- the first presidential debate. obama now at 45%, romney at 49%. that's a significant shift from before the debate when the president was ahead by eight points, 51% to 43%. but let's dig a little bit deeper right now. this question, all likely voters who were asked answered, obama doesn't know how to turn the economy around, do you agree or disagree? 54% said they agree with that. 44% they say disagree. that sounds like trouble for the president's reelection campaign. >> that does. that number -- first of all, the top-line numbers are surprising because i believe pew has been a pr pre-pro obama poll. pew's been pretty good for obama. the top-line numbers are really surprising. have to see if other polls show the same thing. but as you point out, that's the key number, the economy. how does obama get out of this box of voters being not happy with the economy? but up until now, willing to perhaps give him another chance. i'm surprised. i'm surprised the debate turned things around, if they indeed have, that quickly. obama has two more debates to turn thin

obama and mitt romney are about to take the national stage for the first presidential debate and with only two days left to prepare both candidates are hunkering down right now while the political expectations game goes into overdrive. mitt romney is heading to colorado today. our national political correspondent jim acosta is traveling with him. jim? >> reporter: wolf, it is a pre-debateaditio managing expectation just in case their candidate has an off night wednesday and both sides have another thing in common. they think media might be pulling for the other guy. >> governor, are you ready? >> ready for the debate? >> yes. i'm there. >> reporter: after a weekend of debate preparations, mitt romney was careful to avoid questions about his first matchup with president obama. but on a conference call with reporters, a top adviser revealed there's one subject romney is ready for. >> not to worry -- >> reporter: the comments that were caught on tape on the 47% of voters he said were dependent on government. >> we wouldn't be surprised, obviously, if that came up at the debate,

presidential debate coming up tomorrow night. president obama just three points ahead of republican challenger mitt romney in the latest cnn/orc poll. that is within the poll's margin of error. meaning that it's anybody's game. >> and both candidates are pulling the political equivalent of an all-nighter in preparation for their first face-to-face showdown. president obama spoke to a supporter after stopping at a campaign office in nevada. >> indoors all the time. it's a drag. they're making me do my homework. >> a cnn contributor and a washington correspondent for the new yorker is back with us. everybody is saying it's not about winning. but of course it is. what does romney need to do? let's start with him? >> i think he's got three challenges here because he's down. when you're down in the polls going into the debate that raises expectations for you. and traditionally the first debate is the most important. the first thing he needs to do is policy. he needs to get a little bit more specific than he has, some of the polls, that's what the undecided voters want. the swing voters want. they w

here. >>> the candidates are in full prep mode for tomorrow night's presidential debate with republican challenger mitt romney appearing at one final rally in denver. the city where he will be squaring off one-on-one for the first time with president obama. >> in my view, it's not so much winning and losing or even the people themselves, the president and myself. it's about something bigger than that. these debates are an opportunity for each of us to describe the pathway forward for america that we would choose. >> romney will, no doubt, be pressed by the president on the specifics of that pathway and with the candidates neck and neck in the most recent cnnorc poll, with the three-point lead falling within the margin of error. it's anybody's game. here to talk strategy is ryan lizza washington correspondent for the new yorker. nice to have you with us. >> nice to see you. >> to make sense of this. we've seen them trying to lowering the expectations. what can we expect? >> that's the sort of game. you talk about how your opponent is an incredible debater and you don't know anything. you

, in the last presidential campaign, debates were not president obama's strengths. in fact, he's a much better speechmaker than he is a debater. and don't forget, he hasn't debated an awful lot lately. when the president of the united states and you're in the oval office, people tend not to debate with you an awful lot. you live in the presidential bubble. he hasn't been on stage with other people challenging him. so in a way, he sort of has got to get used to this routine over and over again, where as mitt romney has been on a debate stage an awful lot of times. >> if i recall, you were in a lot of those debates, he's tough, he's no wallflower that mitt romney. what is his biggest challenge, though? going into wednesday? >> the biggest challenge, i think mitt romney has got to do a couple of things. they're at odds with each other. first thing goehe's got to do i take on president obama directly when it comes to policy. what he has to tell the voters is i've got a better plan for an economic recovery than the president. he has to challenge him directly. but, brooke, he has to do it in a way,

presidential in that group. we'll see how he does next to president obama which i think is a little bit different. >> yeah. >> that ohio poll is interesting because the cbs one we had last week had it at ten points. now we have another one showing it at nine points. if you start to look at the map, if he doesn't take iowa, if it gets away from him, it becomes difficult to put a puzzle together to win. >> by the way, there has been this narrative that there is the grand conspiracy and that the polls are skewed. this is what walter mondale said in 1984. this is what moveon.org said in 2004, that all the polls were skewed against john kerry and moveon.org said you just wait. and now you're hearing it frantically on the other side, which ironically, again, they are putting fox news in the grand conspiracy. >> what about the conference call today that we have to plan and organize? >> exactly. my point is here we've got a couple of local polls that are showing this, and more importantly, and you guys talk to the romney people all the time. i certainly talk to them all the time. i can tell you
